Well, good to see Gladson helped out, I thought you were trying to find out how to do it yourself (otherwise I would've made them for you yesterday).

Just for the record; there is a big difference between 'Paint' and 'Paint.net'. Here is the application I was talking about: Paint.NET - Free Software for Digital Photo Editing

Hey just a question.

Becuase I have multiple user accounts on my PC, how do I make the Orb only be showing my user account, and not on the others?

I don't think there is one simple answer for that Nate.

What you can do is apply the orb manually, Method 2 in this tutorial. Keep the old explorer as a different name, but run the edited one from within your account. On any other user accounts, you can just use the old backup explorer with the default orb.

Hope this helps, and if it doesn't make any sense, please ask for someone else's advice

I can't say I've ever tried to set it up like this, but perhaps you can do that by making a copy of 'explorer.exe' in the Windows folder (make it 'explorer2.exe'), and then set the windows shell for one user to use 'explorer2.exe' instead.

Theoretically that should work, but I can't say for sure... You'll only know once you try it.

I have done this many times. It works perfectly. I was going to suggest this.

Great Work!
